The Landscape of Memory


“A man sets out to draw the world.

As the years go by, he peoples a space with images of provinces,

kingdoms, mountains, bays, ships, islands, fishes, rooms,

instruments, stars, horses, and individuals.

A short time before he dies,

he discovers that the patient labyrinth of lines

traces the lineaments of his own face.”

Jorge Luis Borges, The Aleph and Other Stories

A memory is what is left when something happens and does not completely

unhappen.  ~Edward de Bono

This series of work combines my film-based images with digital scans. The work explores the desire to recall the past. Memory is vague, unreliable, often clouded by dreams and visions. I have attempted to capture these qualities of reminiscence in my images.
